As any player can see by perusing the Lion Wardrobe, Lioden is absolutely chock-full of mutations. Here, we're focusing on one specific type of mutation: Adult Mutations!

What is an Adult Mutation? An adult mutation is a mutation that only displays when the mutated lion is an adult (or an adolescent, in one mutation's case). You are not able to tell exactly what mutation a cub with an adult mutation present will have until it ages up to 2 years.

Let's follow the adventures of a cub named Peach Bellini. Peach is a female, and we used breeding items on her mother before she was bred. This does not guarantee that Peach has a mutation, but we'll try our luck anyhow!



As you can see in the above screenshot, all lions have a Mutation field. By default, all cubs born will have Not Checked as their mutation status. This does not mean that they have a mutation, but it also does not mean they don't have one. It's always good to play it safe and treat your cubs as though each one has a hidden mutation.

How exactly do you find out if your cub is mutated? You can follow the Not Checked link, which will directly take you to the Falcon's Eye, or you can navigate there on your own by going to Crossroads, then clicking on Scrying Stone & Wardrobe, and finally clicking on the Falcon's Eye banner.

So. Now we're here at the Falcon's Eye.



While at the Falcon's Eye, you can either choose your cub directly from the dropdown on the left, or manually input their ID in the field on the right. The option you choose does matter.

If you select your cub's name from the dropdown and pay the 60 SB fee, your cub's mutation status will update on their page.

If you manually input your cub's ID in the text field and pay the 60 SB fee, your cub's mutation status will not update on their page.

This is due to the fact that by using the text field, you can check the mutation status of other players' cubs. To avoid confusion (and possibly ruining any surprises), manually inputting cub IDs and paying the fee does not update mutation status for any cub, whether they are in your pride or someone else's.

With that out of the way, let's select Peach Bellini from the dropdown and see what happens.

Oh.. oh dear. I am afraid it is bad news. There is some abnormality with your youngling, Peach Bellini. I am very sorry for the result.

No need to be sorry, we wanted this! So, let's head back to Peach's page.




As you can see, her mutation field has now updated to display Adult Mutation Present. What adult mutation does she have? We won't know until she ages up to an adult! Right now, she's just a wee 5 month old cub, so let's give her some aging items.

One Aging Stone, one Aging Crystal, and one rollover later...



Peach Bellini has blossomed into a gorgeous Mane Fluffy lioness! Double Uterus would have been nice too, but alas, beggars can't be choosers.

If you decide to read on, we've included visual examples of all adult mutations that are currently on Lioden. At the bottom of the page, we've included an FAQ section as well!

Female-Exclusive  

The following mutations are exclusive to female lionesses. If you have a female cub that is born with any of these mutations and you use a Cub Sex Changer on her, the mutation WILL be wiped. Using another Cub Sex Changer will not bring back her mutation.

Double Uterus  

Double Uterus was introduced alongside Clawless, Deaf, and Toothless in June 2018.
It is one of three adult mutations that is compatible with all poses (nesting and applicable).

Externally, there is nothing different about Double Uterus lionesses. Internally, however, they have been blessed with two uteruses, thus Double Uterus lionesses are able to produce twice the amount of cubs than a normal lioness would!

Double Uterus lionesses never produce an odd number of cubs. They will only give birth to a litter of two, four, six, or eight cubs—never one, three, five, or seven.

This mutation is a great one for breeding projects. It allows you to get double the amount of cubs you would get from a normal breeding, and using breeding items affects all cubs within the litter.

Tips  

  • You do not need to breed your Double Uterus twice.
  • The first breeding is the one that determines the total amount of cubs born.
  • If you breed a Double Uterus once, then breed her again using a Grain of Paradise or Buffalo Scrotum, you are wasting a breeding item.
    The second breeding will never change the amount of cubs born even if you use cub guarantee items.
  • The second breeding will only overwrite half of the cubs' genetics with the genetics of the second king you have used.
    It is never required to breed a Double Uterus twice or use two studs (whether the same or different stud).
  • You can use a Lion Scrotum on a Double Uterus.
  • Keep in mind that when using a Lion Scrotum, Double Uterus lionesses only have a 5% chance per cub to pass down their mutation.
  • If you use an Ochre Gnawrock (or other similar breeding item) on her first breeding, then you breed her again without using any items, half of the cubs will have the Ochre Gnawrock's effect wiped.

Mane Feathery  

Mane Feathery does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Fluffy  

Mane Fluffy does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Frizzy  

Mane Frizzy does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Fuzzy  

Mane Fuzzy does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Imperial  

Mane Imperial was introduced alongside Mane Villous in March 2018 and was the first adult mutation that had extra requirements in order for it to potentially appear on a female cub. This adult mutation is unique in that it only potentially shows up if a female cub is born with the Royal mane shape.
The Royal mane shape can be bred from the following combinations.

Parent One Parent Two
Barbary Hellraiser
Barbary Hellraiser
Barbary Royal
Barbary Sideburn
Barbary Thick
Barbary Tufted
Hellraiser Royal
Hellraiser Sideburn
Royal Royal
Royal Sideburn
Royal Thick
Royal Tufted
Sideburn Thick
Sideburn Tufted

Mane Imperial cannot be inherited on any female cubs that do not have the Royal mane shape.


You can use a Lion Scrotum on a Mane Imperial lioness to pass down her mutation, however you should also use an Ochre Saltlick on the parent that has the Royal mane shape.

Even if you give your Mane Imperial a Lion Scrotum, her mutation will not pass down onto cubs that do not have the Royal mane shape. The Royal mane shape is required for the Mane Imperial mutation.


Mane Noble  

Mane Noble was introduced alongside Primal Fangs in September 2019.
While it functions similarly to Mane Imperial, the key difference is that it is the parents who are required to have a certain mane shape in order for Mane Noble to potentially appear on a female cub.
It can be bred from a Regal x Sideward pairing. It does not matter which parent has which mane shape or which mane shape the cub inherits.

Regal Sideward
x

Mane Ruffled  

Mane Ruffled does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Scruffy  

Mane Scruffy does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Shaggy  

Mane Shaggy does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Silky  

Mane Silky does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Succubus  

Mane Succubus was introduced alongside Overgrown Tongue in October 2019.
It has a chance at appearing on a female cub from a Diabolic x Hellraiser, Diabolic x Incubus, or Hellraiser x Incubus pairing.
It does not matter which parent has which mane shape, or which mane shape the cub inherits.

Parent One Parent Two
Diabolic Hellraiser
Diabolic Incubus
Hellraiser Incubus


Mane Villous  

Mane Villous was introduced alongside Mane Imperial in March 2018.
It does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Mane Whiskered  

Mane Whiskered was introduced in May 2016.
It does not have any requirements to have a chance at appearing on a female cub.


Overgrown Fur  

Overgrown Fur can be purchased for 4000 SB from the Carrion Shop during January's event. It can be applied to any non-mutated, non-posed adult female lioness.
Overgrown Fur has a very low chance of naturally passing down onto a lioness's female cubs without needing a Lion Scrotum to be used.
This mutation will not randomly appear on lionesses - it must either be applied or bred from an Overgrown Fur lioness.

Mutie On Demand: Overgrown Fur
With this item, you can apply the Overgrown Fur mutation to your chosen adult lioness, so long as she does not already have a mutation and isn't posed. This mutation has a small chance of naturally passing!

Male-Exclusive  

The following mutation is exclusive to male lions. If you have a male cub that is born with this mutation and you use a Cub Sex Changer on him, the mutation WILL be wiped. Using another Cub Sex Changer will not bring back his mutation.

Maneless  

Maneless is unique in that it appears as soon as a male cub ages up into an adolescent.
So far, this is the only male-exclusive adult mutation.


Both Genders  

The following mutations can occur on both lions and lionesses. It is safe to use a Cub Sex Changer on cubs with these mutations, as they carry over to both males and females.

Overgrown Claws  

Overgrown Claws is one of three adult mutations that is compatible with all poses (nesting and applicable).

Adult Female

Adult Female Evil Pose

Adult Female Good Pose

Adult Female Jolly Pose

Adult Female Kind Pose

Adult Female Neutral Pose

Adult Female Snarky Pose

Adult Male

Frequently Asked Questions  

Q: What is an AMP?
A: AMP is an abbreviation for Adult Mutation Present. It's much faster to type out "AMP" versus "Adult Mutation Present".

Q: Can I apply adult mutations onto my lions?
A: Overgrown Fur is the only adult mutation that can be applied to your lion. It can only be applied to adult female lionesses that do not already have a mutation and are not posed.

Q: Can I choose or influence what adult mutation my cub gets?
A: Not quite. You can use a Lion Scrotum on an adult-mutated lioness in order to have a 25% chance per cub for her to pass down her mutation so long as there are no other extraneous requirements, but there is no other way to influence the mutation your cub gets.

For Double Uterus lionesses, Lion Scrotums only have a 5% chance per cub to pass down the mother's mutation.
For Mane Imperial lionesses, you need to use an Ochre Saltlick on the parent with the Royal mane shape as well as use a Lion Scrotum on the mother in order to have a chance at her cubs inheriting her mutation. If a cub does not have the Royal mane shape, they will not have the Mane Imperial mutation, even if the Lion Scrotum's effect triggers.

Q: How do I know what adult mutation my cub has?
A: You will not know until the cub ages up to an adult. Even if you use a Lion Scrotum, there's always a chance the cub could have gotten a random mutation.

For Maneless lions, the Maneless mutation displays starting at adolescence. This is the only adult mutation that shows before a lion fully reaches adulthood.

Q: If I sex change my cub with an "Adult Mutation Present", will their mutation be wiped?
A: Yes. Sex-specific mutations are wiped when a cub or adolescent has a Cub Sex Changer used on them unless the cub has Overgrown Claws or Overgrown Teeth. Nearly all adult mutations are sex-specific, meaning they will only show up on cubs of that sex. Only males can have the Maneless mutation, and only females can have Double Uteruses, Manes, and Overgrown Fur mutations.

Both sexes can have Overgrown Claws and Overgrown Teeth. If you sex change a cub that has an "Adult Mutation Present" and the text still displays after their sex change, congratulations—they have either Overgrown Claws or Overgrown Teeth!

Q: Does my cub's mane shape affect what her adult mutation will be?
A: Only in the case of the Royal mane shape and the Mane Imperial mutation, and even then, it's a low chance that the cub will have that mutation. All other adult mutations are not influenced by what mane shape the cub is born with.

Q: Do poses work on adult mutations?
A: Applicable poses and female nesting poses are only compatible with Double Uterus, Overgrown Claws, and Overgrown Teeth. No other adult mutations can be posed.

Q: Can adult mutations pass down onto cubs?
A: Overgrown Fur is the only adult mutation that is naturally heritable and has a low chance of naturally passing down onto female cubs.

Q: If I use a Cotton Root Bark, GMO Cow, and/or Lion Meat, will it increase my chances of producing an adult mutated cub?
A: Not specifically, no. Using these mutation items will increase your general chance of producing a mutation—not the chances of getting an adult mutation specifically.

Q: Can adult mutations randomly appear on lions?
A: In most cases, yes, so long as they do not have any other extraneous requirements (such as Mane Imperial) or are naturally heritable (such as Overgrown Fur).

Q: Can I sex change an adult lion with a mutation?
A: No. Adult lions with mutations cannot be sex changed.
